    Dear Members and Associates:

    By popular demand, the Society for International Affairs is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring a Fall Golf event, Friday, September 28th at the Old Hickory Golf Club in Woodbridge, VA. 

    We find this outdoor activity an enjoyable alternative to our regular seminars and work environment.  We invite your participation for this golf outing as a way to enjoy the company of your colleagues and professional contacts.

    Check-in will start at 8:00AM where golf cart assignments will be made accordingly, and continental breakfast is also included.  Please allow time for your warm up at the driving range and on the putting greens. 

    At 9:00AM we’ll have a Shotgun start.  The format will be “captain’s choice”.  Lunch will be provided at noon with happy and awards at the end of play.  Any decision to postpone the play due to weather will be made at the golf course on the day of the event.

    Dress Code: Men - Slacks or shorts, shirts with sleeve and collar. Women - dress, skirt, slacks or shorts, and blouse or appropriate shirt. Cut-offs or blue jeans are not permitted for men or women.

    Registration:  You must register online.  If you have already coordinated a specific pairing or foursome, please list your teammate(s) in your registration under "Comments". Registration closes on Wednesday, September 19th!

    We look forward to seeing you at Old Hickory Golf Club.  We hope that you will join us in this enjoyable event where no ITAR training will be offered or required!
